ORBAT is a military acronym for Order of Battle. Technically speaking, Order of Battle is the identification of command structure, strength, and disposition of personnel, equipment, and units of the military of a protagonist. Or, simply put, it is an account of the strengths and assets of a would-be combatant force.

Unless pulled back, the world is now at the very brink of entering one grizzly global battle. The battle ground is the Middle East. And the two chief adversaries in this upcoming battle are the Muslims and the Western forces marshaled by the Zionist Jews.

So it is basically going to be a clash between the Zionist Jews and the Muslims. While these two opponents may possibly be fighting for their individual ideologies, the Western forces, with United States of America in the lead, are in for more than that. As a spin-off benefit, they are also eyeing the still massive, though fast dwindling, energy resources buried beneath the burning sands of the Middle East.

The tangible military ORBATs of the rivals can easily be found at the Jane’s Defence Manual and is outside the scope of this piece. It is the intangible ORBATs of the rivals that the scribe needs to highlight.

Here are these ORBATs of the two main adversaries. As the Zionists draw their strength from the world Jewry, so first, the Jews’.

Of foremost interest is the intriguing fact as to how the tiny Jewish world populace, only 14 million on the entire planet, has the almost 1.4 billion Muslim mass of this same planet like a rabbit in a boa constrictor’s choking hold.

Part answer to that, of course, is that they do it with the help of the Goliath, the US of A, whom they now have on a leash. Here is a brief list of just some of the prominent Jews who are, or have been in the recent past, in positions of power and influence in the US government.

For a 6 million Jewish population of America, there are/were;

Two US Presidential Candidates i.e. Senator John Kerry and Wesley Clark.

Eleven US Senators i.e. Frank Lautenberg, Joseph Lieberman, Barbara Boxer , Norm Coleman, Russ Feingold, Dianne Feinstein , Herbert Lehman, Carl Levin, Charles Schumer, Paul Wellstone and Arlen Specter.

Ten US Secretaries of State of various governmental departments and a Federal Reserve Chairman i.e. Henry Kissinger, Madeline Albright, Robert Rubin, Spencer Abraham, William Cohen, Henry Morgenthau, Robert Reich, Abe Ribicoff, Lewis Schwellenbach, Paul Wolfowitz (Deputy Defense Secretary) and Alan Greenspan.

Eleven US Congressmen and women i.e. Bella Abzug, Vic Berger, Eliot Engel, Barney Frank, Steve Israel, Jerry Nadler, Henry Waxman, Anthony Weiner, Robert Wexler, Steve Rothman and Brad Sherman.

Seven US Supreme Court Justices i.e. Louis Brandeis, Stephen Breyer, Benjamin Cardozo, Abe Fortas, Felix Frankfurter, Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Arthur Goldberg.

Two White House Press Secretaries i.e. Ari Fleischer and Ron Ziegler.

But wait. Before the Muslim conspiracy theorists jump up and exclaim, “See, we told you so!” and blame all their miseries on the above mentioned fact, something else needs to be highlighted too. And that is that the Jews did not reach these positions by a quirk of fate. They worked at it.

They worked hard at it while the Muslims were busy wrangling over the procedural differences of their prayers, the methods of ablution and the lengths of their beards, banning kite flying and television, and spawning the limb chopping, women beating Taliban on the side.

Please keep in mind that just 0.2 % of the world population is Jewish. The paucity of space does not allow a full list of their achievements. Yet, consider the following;

From the Jewish faith, there are 95 Nobel Prize winners in Science and medicine, 16 Nobel Prize winners in economics and 12 Nobel Laureates in literature (another 68 are Pulitzer Prize winners).

In other words, in the sciences alone, this miniscule fraction of humanity has won 22 percent of all the Nobel Prizes ever awarded - 29 percent of the prizes since 1950, after the Holocaust drastically reduced their numbers. Given their small population, Jews should have earned only one of the 502 Nobels awarded for physics, chemistry, medicine and physiology. They have won 123.

As economists they are specially gifted. They have earned 38 percent of all Nobel Prizes for economics and 67 percent of the John Clarke Bates Medals for talented economists under age 40. They were influential in the creation of the Federal Reserve System in the USA and have headed it for twenty-five of the last thirty-five years.

Likewise, Jews have earned 11 percent of the Nobel prizes for literature and 20 percent of the Pulitzer Prizes for nonfiction.

The Fields Medal, awarded to the world’s brightest mathematicians under age 40, is the honor John Nash, of the book and movie ‘A Beautiful Mind’ had hoped to win. Instead, he took a Nobel Prize in economics as a consolation prize. One-fourth of the Fields Medals winners are Jews.

Of the 267 individual inventors listed in Encyclopedia Britannica, more than 13 were Jews. Jews are represented on the list 22 times more than one would expect based on their population.

Similarly, in politics, they are 11 percent of the United States Senate and 6 percent of the House of Representatives at any given time. They were 42 percent of the 100 largest political donors to the 2000 election cycle, and since 1917, when Judge Louis Brandeis was appointed, 17 percent of Supreme Court justices have been Jews.

Of the 2003 CEOs of Fortune’s 100 largest companies, 10 to 15 percent are Jews. Of Fortune’s 2003 list of the twenty-five most powerful people in business, six (24 percent) are Jews. Of the thirty entrepreneurs included in the 2004 Fortune “America’s 40 Richest Under 40,” at five of the top ten are Jewish as are 23 percent of the Forbes 400.

Jews were generally not allowed to own real estate outside the ghetto for the better part of 1,800 years. They have compensated by becoming a major force in development and management of property all over the world. Of the five largest Real Estate Investment Trusts listed by Forbes magazine in May 2002, four were headed by Jews.

That is not all. The Jews created the world’s largest and most valuable computer company (Dell, Michael Dell), co-founded the world’s most successful search engine (Google, Sergey Brin), head the world’s largest software company (Microsoft, Steve Ballmer), co-founded and head the world’s second largest software company (Oracle, Lawrence Ellison), co-founded, led and serve as chairman of the world’s dominant microprocessor and memory chip company (Intel, Andrew Grove) and served as CEO or COO at three of the world’s four most valuable Internet companies (Yahoo, Terry Semel; eBay, Jeff Skoll; and IAC, Barry Diller). Equally, almost all the media giants are owned by the Jews. One needs to stop for shortness of breath. The list runs long.

And here is the Muslims’ ORBAT.

For starters, following are some highlights of Dr. Farrukh Saleem’s stellar piece ‘Why the Muslims are so Powerless’.

“There are an estimated 1,476,233,470 Muslims on the face of the planet. Every fifth human being is a Muslim and for every Jew there are one hundred Muslims.

…There are 57 member-countries of the Organisation of Islamic Conference (OIC), and all of them put together have around 500 universities; one university for every three million Muslims. The United States has 5,758 universities and India has 8,407. In 2004, Shanghai Jiao Tong University compiled an ‘Academic Ranking of World Universities’, and intriguingly, not one university from Muslim-majority states was in the top-500.

…Muslim-majority countries have 230 scientists per one million Muslims. The US has 4,000 scientists per million and Japan has 5,000 per million. In the entire Arab world, the total number of full-time researchers is 35,000 and there are only 50 technicians per one million Arabs (in the Christian world there are up to 1,000 technicians per one million). Furthermore, the Muslim world spends 0.2 per cent of its GDP on research and development, while the Christian world spends around five per cent of its GDP….”

For around a 3 million American Muslim population, the recently elected lone Muslim senator Keith Ellison is the first ever in US governmental history.

There are only two Muslim Nobel Prize winners in literature and two in science (not counting the Peace Nobels on either side as those are given more for political reasons than any other). There too, the first science Nobel winner, Professor Abdus Salam of Pakistan, was so hounded, dishonored and mistreated in Pakistan, for having a difference of faith with the majority, that he left for America never to return again.

In an earlier piece, the scribe had presented some highlights of the Arab Human Development Reports (AHDR). As the region forms the heartland of the Muslim world and is more resource rich than any other Muslim area, its political, economic and cultural matters would give an overall picture of the plight of the Muslim world at large.

According to these reports, the GDP [Gross Domestic Product] in all Arab countries combined stood at $531.2 billion in 1999, less than that of a single middle-size European country, Spain, ($595.5 billion). The state of information isolation is such that let alone fresh, indigenous writing and thinking, the figures for even translated books are gloomy. The Arab world translates about 330 books annually, one fifth of the number that Greece translates. In the 1,000 years since the reign of the Caliph Mamoun, the Arabs have translated as many books as Spain translates in just one year.

The use of the Internet is dreadfully low with only 0.5 per cent Arab population using state regulated Internet. Filmmaking appears to be declining. Newspapers circulate in the Middle East at one-fifth the rate of the developed world. Arabic books represent less than 1 percent of world production, even though Arabs make up 5 percent of world population.

Those, then, are the two ORBATs. The result of the clash is any body’s guess.

So lament on O Muslims and when you do awake from your numb slumber, ask of yourselves the same question that Mark Twain asked about Jews more than a hundred years back;

“…The Egyptian, the Babylonian, and the Persian rose, filled the planet with sound and splendor, then faded to dream-stuff and passed away; the Greek and the Roman followed; and made a vast noise, and they are gone; other people have sprung up and held their torch high for a time, but it burned out, and they sit in twilight now, or have vanished. The Jew saw them all, beat them all, and is now what he always was, exhibiting no decadence, no infirmities of age, no weakening of his parts, no slowing of his energies, no dulling of his alert and aggressive mind. All things are mortal but the Jew; all other forces pass, but he remains. What is the secret of his immortality?”

Good article

This is well written. First time I am reading from a moslem, that they are not deprived, rather they need to change attitude. In Jurasic Park II ( or III?), there was nice comment "Violence and technology are not good bedfellows". Jews are more inclined towards knowledge and avoid friction following their founder ( Moses has not asked the Jews to fight with Pharao's people. He rather has migrated to the other side of see and founded new civilization. The zews have created Bethelhem,Zerusalem etc., When their place was attacked by moslems, they had left that place and migrated to Europe. When they were killed in Europe, they have migrated to US and Israel) and moslems are the opposite violent as their founder(Muhammed. Muhammed destroyed temples in middle east, killed people. Similar method is follwed by the moslem invaders in India). If you want to match with jews, you need to follow their path ( ecased to be moslem). There is no point lamenting about this fact.

Wrong Focus: European Jews prrospered because they produced smart kids. Mulsims in Europe produce su

Let me say first on where I agree with Mr. Hussain. He is right on the money when he defines the pre-requisites of becoming great. I am happy to see that his pre-requisites are not some religious mumbo-jumbo. Sure the path to success is shear hardwork (and some finesse). Anyone who follows the path of hardwork succeeds to some degree, without any regards to religion or ethnicity.

Now to the point where Mr. Hussain is dead wrong. And that happens to be the very premise of his long-winded essay. It is an old disease to single out Jews. In modern times we all know this disease is called "anti-Semitism". Arab lands are particularly afflicted with this disease and so are some regions of Europe and America. Unfortunately we in Pakistan have "imported" this disease and now everyday we self-inject the "hate-filled anti-Semitic hallucinogens".

Grouping together all the Jewish people and then singling them out for "power" was wrong analysis in the time of Mark Twain, and it is even more wrong these days.

Jewish people come from many backgrounds and ethnicities just like any other religion. Therefore the analysis based on "lumped up Jews" will take us no where.

Mr. Hussain miserably fails to understand that most of the awards and prizes went to European Jews. On the other hand Jews from Arab, Asian, or African regions do not figure very highly on that awards list.

German and Russian Jews did well in science because the two countries produced a lot of non-Jewish scientists as well. British and American Jewish economists did well because there were a lot of non-Jewish economists from the same regions. The reason was simple! Jewish mothers in Europe were preparing scholars. Off course British Pakistanis on the other hand are preparing terrorists and suicide bombers.

So the emphasis must be placed on the European trends and not just "Jewish traditions". Jewish minority struggled and worked hard in Europe just like Asian minorities work hard in America these days. Chinese, Koreans, Pakistanis, and Indian minorities make sure their kids end up in the best possible schools. The end result is that some of these kids will surely reach the top of their fields.

The bottom line is that any group of parents who prepare their kids to study in the elite schools of the West will produce future scholars. On the other hand if the parents shout “Islam Khutray main hay”. If religious leaders create mob hysteria with “dunday-baaz” Burqa clad Hifsa students, or CD burning weirdoes from Lal Masjib, the result will be abject poverty and dismal failure. Off course the same dunday baaz Mullahs and Mullahnis will turn around and blame those “Jews”. What a shame!

Progress and development starts from individuals, then groups, and then nations. Emphasizing on Muslim Ummah’s progress without expecting individual Muslims to work hard is simply stupid.

Even in Arab regions, Dubai got rid of tribalism and prospered. Thus a tiny port is setting an example of hard work for the whole region. Therefore it will be a mistake to lump Dubai Arabs with the Bedouin tribes from the Arab heartland.

Mr. Hussain will be well advised to cleanse his heart from the hate and emotional analysis. Only then he will be able see the light.

Great Respect Given

No muslim political commentator I have ever heard of has had the "Plain Guts" or intestinal fortitude to speak as you have. You realize that many would kill you for what you have written. Even though it is the truth. I sincerely hope this does not happen. Because all deserve to hear the truth not lies or half truths. Its easy to stir up the masses with language of dissatisfaction and hate and hard to tell the obvious but unspoken truths that no one in the muslim world wants to recognize. You just did. Now how do we all christian muslim jew hindu buddist make this world a better place for all to live and raise our children in peace. Always Talk,
talk, talk, better than War, War, War. Ballots not Bullets is the answer to humanity For ALL OF US. I never thought i would say this to you after reading many of your articles. But I say "Thank You"

Well written

Very well written article and an eyeopener for the us the muslims and our leaders who shy away from spending on education.....and even well intentioned dynamic modernizers like Musharaf are just crticized, opposed and their legs are pulled and psuedo crisis after crisis is created to weaken him by the illterate opposition.....

Sheryar, United Arab Emirates - 10 April, 2007


I didnt read whole of the article, because its nothing new,,it bored, something everyone else talks about..i did come across one fact u got wrong, john kerry isnt jewish, hes christian, his mother a protestant, check his biography..secondly, people forget to mentioned how the jewish population was 18 million before the holocast and only 12 million, after, and how they built themselves up with dedication and hardwork, within 50 years, i am sick of people trying to say, jews are rick, they are powerful, ..they are! because they worked hard for it, and they still do. You dont become a sentor, or a powerful businessman/politican by doing nothing , they worked hard for it, and its a lesson for muslims, who have only talked...I mean why do we say jews are bad because they are rich? tommorow muslims might be rich , will this make us bad? now i know you are targetting zionists jews, but the effect this article will have will only be anit semetic, which is something that shouldnt be encvouraged. So muslims have a bad few bad times with jews, even in the Prophet's time, we had problems, but so many jews and non muslims still lived and traded in Arabia at that time, and in the ottoman, abbasid etc times...

uzair usman, United Arab Emirates - 10 April, 2007

So What !

I understand that Jews are hard working and Muslims needs more emphasis on education etc... But statistics of Jews in USA... nothing great, if take Brahmins in India... they have 75% top positions, awards, writing etc in the history etc... Noble prize is award basically give to Europeans and us a, where rest of the world is not technically advanced, hence I am not surprised with these numbers... but they are not great thinkers, hard working than Japanese, who ruled defeated Russia and mighty china for thousand years and super heroes in quality.... I agree with author that Muslim nations must spend more on education and research. Finally the Pakistan government must stop slogans and show more results... I see daily see slogans and little work.. self boosting should be stopped.. see any head line in Pakistan you can understand.

Stereotyping is easy but short-sighted

Dear sir

Assalamu Alaikum

The article above lumps all Muslim countries as impoverished and backward.

The article stereotypes Jews ignoring the human rights violations in Palestine and Lebanon.

India's 8,407 universities are merely degree factories that did not help bring enlightenment to the monkey worshipping people. Incase you are unaware, average wages of a Indian farmer is just 40% that of a Pakistani farmer today.

Muslim societies that are alert will remain prosperous like UAE, Turkey, Malaysia, Saudi Arabia,...

The article ignores the sacrifices of the Muslim martyrs who commit brave suicide attacks to ensure the survival of the next generation.

Sadat, United Arab Emirates - 10 April, 2007

inherently flawed

The real problem with Islam is that it suffers from a misconceived superiority complex coupled with rigidity & intolerance towards people of other faiths (Bamiyan Buddhas). While the Jews are busy furthering their technological capabilities, the Lal Masjid mullahs were contemplating the fate of Nilofar Bakhtiyar for hugging a foreigner. What a joke!

At other times, the Islamic mullahs are busy spewing venom on other religious faiths, be it Christianity, Buddhism, Hinduism, Jews & what not.

For all practical purposes, Islam has got only two choices : to evolve with the evolving times or become extinct in a clash of civilizations. If things don't change soon, a couple hundred years down the line, Islam will be remembered as a violent & intolerant faith that existed in the past.

So, Mullahs of the world unite, you have nothing to lose but your fanaticism.

Tim Robbins, Aruba - 11 April, 2007

Brave suicide attacks???

Please Mr. Sadat. Tell us you didn't mean what you said about "brave suicide attacks."

I wanted to say something to you about your remark - "brave suicide attacks," but then I thought, why bother?

I would only run into a wall of ignorance.

Thank you Mr. Hussain - for a very interesting article.

Ayasha, United Kingdom - 12 April, 2007

And our leaders

You forgot to mention something .The Jews who govern Islamic countries .Musharaf , King Abdullah ,Mubarak ,King Mohammed 6 and many other Jews .I don't mind that those Jews have wealth and power .But what I don't like is the facts they want to sell our women and childeren to international sextourisme .I don't like they fight against Islam

Jews always made it in western countries

If one examines jewish history they will notice that jews almost always made what greatness they achieved in the confines of western countries. What about all those thousands of years when the jews weren't in the west. They didn't do anything great then except in the financial realm. Why hasn't there ever been a great jewish realist painter or sculpture? Also consider that money controls the arts and other achievment awards so how much of that great jewish success is the result of the fact that they have financial control of America and other countries of the west. The fact is the jews buy their way in whatever endeavor they set as their goal to achieve.

Sleepy Hollow?

Anwaar very well written and
motivating article,if only we
only understand Saadi when he
said:He who has self-conceit
in his head- Do not imagine that he will ever hear the truth.While Rumi spoke of Two
reeds drink from one stream.
One is hollow, the other is sugar-cane.Have we not become
conceited hollow canes!
